We have an exciting new opportunity for our students that will be available this coming Summer, June – August of 2020!
For the past two years or so, our staff has been looking at the research on what is termed the “summer learning loss” and the findings are pretty convincing.
Did You Know?
- All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer.
- On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months.
- Some students can lose about 2-3 months of reading achievement.
With a traditional school calendar, this can mean that teachers are spending up to 10% of the school year playing catch-up from the summer learning loss. This means that if we are going to beat the summer learning loss, then it is important for our students to be engaged academically over the summer months.
So, this summer Eau Claire Public Schools is super excited to offer our students eight (8) weeks of fun and learning with our new summer learning camp, S’MORE than Just Camp! Register by March 27th, 2020.
What is S’MORE than Just Camp?
S’MORE than Just Camp is a summer program that will be filled with Science, Math, Outrageous Fun, Reading, & Engaging the Brain. Our goal is to beat the summer academic loss that occurs when students are not engaged in learning over the summer break. S’MORE than Just Camp! will offer current students in Grades Pre-K-7th grade (student must be five (5) by June 1, 2020) an innovative, fun, and academically challenging summer experience. At S’MORE than Just Camp! , campers are guaranteed to make lasting memories, all the while turning the traditional summer brain drain into a fun, like no other, summer brain gain!
